Professional learning was provided in an all-day, pre-conference workshop, as well as in sessions during the conference.

Over 140 chapter advisors participated in various parts of the training! Professional learning topics included a session on this year’s Own Your Future thme, as well as training modules covered in the 2016-2017 Train the Trainer Certification Course, including chapter enhancement through project management, chapter communication strategies and more.

Advisors completing the sessions were awarded certificates of completion and re-certification points as incentives.

“Being able to earn re-certification points that actually apply to our teaching is one reason advisors want to attend these sessions and they really help us prepare and get motivated for the new year, ” attending advisor Cindy Garrett noted.

Trainer Donna Roush remarked that a large number of career switchers and advisors who are new to DECA participated in training. This created a great network of support and resource sharing to get advisors in gear for the school-year!
